Hey again my little Fab Free Peeps!

There are so many awesome freebies out there right now, and you know the Fab Free crew is just itching to show you all the goodies that are strewn about the grid!  I’ve got some more news today about a cute free top and some free hair that I picked up on the XOXO hunt, which is perfect for days when you want to show off.  And seriously, that should be every day!

Ex’s and Oh’s…

I’ve been trying my luck on the XOXO hunt.  It’s a fairly simple concept – you tp to the location, find the box (they’re not that hard to find, I promise), and then in local chat, type “XOXO”.  If the box feels you’re being romantic enough, it will gift you something fancy for free!  If not, well you have the choice of buying the prize for 50L or to come back in 24 hours and try all over again!  You can grab the handy-dandy HUD on Marketplace to preview the prizes and help with teleporting from location to location.  I got lucky at both KoKoLoReS and Bodhi!

The top I’m wearing from Bodhi is a very hot, off the shoulders number which makes me want to make horrible puns about giving people the cold shoulder.  I promise I won’t.  It’s really pretty though, isn’t it?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Isis

I also picked up this sleek and yet voluminous hairdo from KoKoLoReS.  It comes in several different shades, in my favourite colours: all fades where the ends of the hair are gorgeous shades of pink or blonde.  I of course went my signature dark with pink tips!  Best of all, both these prizes were completely free!

The XOXO hunt runs until February 18th, so hustle!

Achoo!

-snifflesniff- Oh the things I do for you, Commander. He’s been so sulky recently (I wonder why. He does have the treehouse to himself) and to remedy this I decided to take him on my latest outing. Something urban was what I had in mind, but he seemed insistent on the quiet little nooks and crannies and we ended up on snowy Honeycomb. It was quite lucky that I already had on this cozy outfit or else you’d be seeing a Sheidey-cicle.

Lifesaver.

There’s been more activity recently on the Fabulously Free in SL group gift page but before you go running off I’d like to bring to your attention this wonderfully comfortable gift from BlackRose. With a few sims still in the grip of Winter (let’s face it some of those will be Wintery all year long, it is SL after all) it’s best to at least keep some warm outfits at hand. A top candidate for this is the wonderfully textured Hearts sweater dress. Long sleeved and loose fitting, this sweater dress is great to move around in and I simply adore the contrasting white heart patterns on it. Though the dress’ high turtleneck collar is guaranteed to protect your neck from cool winds, the Hearts sweater dress also features an inbuilt scarf for added warmth. The scarf itself is complimentary to the outfit (and perfect for days when you don’t want to stand around choosing accessories for yourself) with it’s darker red tones and pretty Aztec-esque prints that add a nice dash of teal to the entire outfit. Sizes included in the gift package are; five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and one fitted mesh size. There is also a great alpha layer included that really helps with the fitting.

The Hearts sweater dress is free with your free Fabulously Free in SL group tag; take a peek {HERE} to get the details of how to join up. If you have another group slot to fill up, do consider joining the BlackRose store group as not only is it free but they have two group gifts (one of them blogged {HERE} by Love) out now for you to collect.

Family outing (accessories)XOXO

Valentine’s Day may be over but I don’t see why I should stop wearing red or forsake anything heart shaped until next year. I’ve only just gotten into the many, many Valentines themed hunts going on across the grid at the moment, with one of them being the XOXO hunt. This hunt puts a great twist on the traditional hunting format in that you’ll need to rely on lucky and charm (but mostly just luck) to get your prize. When you arrive at participating merchants, just spot the golden heart and type in ‘xoxo’ without the quotation marks in local chat. If that ‘lurve connection’ is strong, you’ll the prize for free and if not, you’ll have 24 hours to practice your wooing and try again. If you don’t want to wait for your objects of affection, however, simply pay the vendor 50L for your prize. The hunt hud is pretty nifty for getting around fast and is available from the organizer’s office or from the Marketplace for free.

My first round of the hunt yielded some pretty great results as I managed to snag these unique booties from Bodhi. Just look at the heels on these!! How could I pass up wearing something with heart-shaped heels?! ! (-Ahem- Must remember to be professional. -coughcough-) The open toe design and luscious deep red color also work in favor of these booties as do the gold studding that adorns its body. The Bodhi heart heels are made for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh feet only.

Another prize that I picked up on the XOXO hunt trail was the Hypnotic Hearts fatpack from Koffin Nails. I’m always looking for new manicure and pedicure stores (-glances guiltily at all the nail polish bottles on her vanity-) and was pretty excited to receive this gift from Koffin Nails. Included are applier huds for Maitreya and Slink mesh hands and feet and an Omega applier hud for mesh bodies compatible with that system. On the hud are nine striking duel colored combinations to choose from. Personally, I love how glossy these nails look and the detailing of the heart shape on each one is simply amazing. The XOXO Hunt is running from the 11th to the 25th of this month so go and try your luck!

And that’s a wrap. The wind is picking up and come on Commander, let’s see if Mama Bear and the twins would like to join us for dinner.

Catch you guys later! Oh but before I leave here’s a closer look at that amazing mani and pedi set from Koffin Nails.

Leftover Turkey!

I’m back today with a few more ‘leftover’ Hunts to enjoy.

leftover

First up is the 1L Jerky Turkey Hunt and the ‘Tessa” dress from TSR Designs. There are a ton of Hunts going on at TSR so prepare to spend some time. Plus there are group gifts and Gachas to check out.

From a jerky to a dirty. Next is the “Twila brown tweed Peacoat” from Bodhi and it’s the FREE prize for the Dirty Turkey Hunt. This is one of those things in SL that I kinda wish I had in RL. The details are spot on and I love the fall tweed look.

My pretty leaf swirly poses are also part of the Dirty Turkey Hunt. These are from Juxtapose and include the leaves props. The leaves actually slowly swirl around you as you pose. Juxatpose has generously placed both a ladies three pose set and a men’s three pose set in the prize for the Hunt.

Both the Jerky Turkey Hunt and the Dirty Turkey Hunt run until November 30th so don’t delay!

 

P.S.  Do you remember my shoes from here? They are still available from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes in the Leaves are Falling Hunt for 1L until November 30th!
